Serve and Protect

Make plans now to join us for Chattanooga’s must-attend social event to support the Tennessee Aquarium’s mission-critical work. The 5th Annual Serve & Protect Gala will be held on Thursday, October 1, 2015.

One of our chef's has been announced! 

Suzanne Vizethann has agreed to be one of our chefs for this year’s event. 

Suzanne is a "Chopped Champion".  In 2011 she placed first in The Food Network’s Chopped series. In 2014, she taught Al Roker how to make a sweet tea-brined, deep fried turkey breast on NBC’s Today Show. 

Suzanne is the owner and Executive Chef of Buttermilk Kitchen and The Hungry Peach catering company

Suzanne says, “A lot of people hear the term ‘farm to table’, and it’s become almost this trendy term to say. It’s really not a term, it’s really just a movement we support as chefs. Knowing where your food comes from is really important, and I think that we as chefs and restaurateurs should be able to educate the public on what you should be eating.“

The evening begins with cocktails & appetizers provided by Whole Foods Market in the IMAX Great Hall followed by an entertaining “Food Network-styled” live cooking show.

Following the live cooking show, enjoy an elegant seated seafood dinner – prepared on site by some of Chattanooga’s top chefs and served in one of the Aquarium’s galleries. The event concludes with a dessert reception with the chefs.

All proceeds from the 2015 Serve & Protect special event support the Aquarium’s conservation and education efforts.
